Six quarters of miserable defense exposed Mountaineers in Big 12 race

But the defense - which returned two Will Grier fumbles for touchdowns -probably is the reason why OU won the game.

The Buzz: Texas punched its ticket to the Big 12 Championship Game with its 24-17 road victory over Kansas on Friday.

Trailing by a 28-21 margin following a 68-yard touchdown scamper by OU's Kennedy Brooks, the Mountaineers' Will Grier found himself in a ton of trouble on a 2nd-and-11 at the West Virginia 24. "If anyone on their defense has anything to say, they can have fun playing Kyler next week".

Given a second chance to take its third lead of the first half, West Virginia again was stopped, posting the game's first three-and-out and its first punt. (West Virginia surrendered 90 total points in those six quarters, but two touchdowns were scored by Oklahoma's defense).

Kolasinac has come in for most of the criticism, while Petr Cech has been replaced by Bernd Leo in goal. I forget also, Stephan Lichtsteiner is beginning to train with us but he is maybe not okay for Sunday".

The first penalty came early in the second quarter, when officials called offensive pass interference on wide receiver David Sills V. Sills crashed into OU defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles, freeing Gary Jennings Jr. for an easy touchdown grab in the corner of the end zone. "A lot of nerves, but at the end of the day, this is how we like it".

The score ping ponged back and forth until a 1-yard run by Trey Sermon - following a rare defensive stop - catapulted the visitors to a seven-point, 28-21 lead. "It's a shame that we played so good on offense and gave them 14 points, but I was proud of the way the guys battled". I like West Virginia plus the points as well as the over. Mountaineers quarterback Will Grier was scrambling and was pushed out of bounds, right into Green. The Mountaineers were humming along early, driving 75 yards twice on nine and 10 plays, respectively, to set the early pace.

Again, Oklahoma immediately answered.

With his cousin, Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown, watching from the sideline, OU junior wide receiver Marquise Brown had 243 receiving yards (second most in program history) and two touchdowns on 11 receptions (22.1 average). Linebacker Curtis Bolton scooped the ball up and ran in 48 yards for a touchdown, giving the Sooners a 59-49 lead.

It was symbolic in nature, as the International Olympic Committee had ruled out a name change, which would be opposed by China. But some voters say worsening relations with Beijing have harmed business, while others believe she has been too conciliatory.

Case in point occurred at Milan Puskar Stadium when No. 13 West Virginia played host to No. 6 Oklahoma. The Mountaineers were fresh off their most stifling performance in eight years, limiting TCU to minus-7 rushing yards.

Rather than bank on his defense getting a stop, Dana Holgorsen elected to try and onside kick - which Oklahoma recovered.

The Sooners have yet to lose to West Virginia (7-0) since the Mountaineers joined the Big 12 Conference in 2012. Kyler Murray led the Sooners with 364 yards passing and 3 touchdown passes along with rushing for 114 yards and a rushing score. He also had three touchdowns and an interception.
